... lot of photos today. I use the camera, phone and iPad to take photos. John seems to think that I take too many.... From the train you can see many layers of walls built up the mountains. They are designed to stop avalanches and provide a grim reminder of the dangers locals and skiers face each winter. After the train we bussed it to Lucerne. What a city.
